An online talk by George Sheeran on Thursday 17 June 2021 at 7.30pm, hosted by the Yorkshire Vernacular Buildings Study Group.
Until the end of the nineteenth century many rural areas that had not experienced industrial and population growth continued to produce building materials in traditional ways. This talk deals with the supply of bricks and lime for building purposes before improvements in manufacture were adopted. It will be illustrated by sites and some buildings in the Yorkshire Wolds.
